I am thinking of purchasing a 1974 TD20 dozer. It has a turbocharged V8. It has oil in the radiator. I was told the engine oil cooler has a leak. What is the fix? How expensive is the fix? Thanks guys.

Is the oilcooler in the bottom of the radiator or
in the engine? Your local radiator shop may be able to repair it. Hal
PS: If it can't be repaired they may be able to find a replacement. I don't think it will be cheap.

No biggie, purchase a "stand-alone" oil cooler and mount it in-front of the radiator or if insufficient space at that location, then mount it where-ever you have space, BUT you will have to add an electric cooling fan for it. Connect the oil lines from your existing radiator to the new "stand-alone", and thoroughly flush out your radiator & cooling system. I have found this solution to be the best for just about any piece of equipment, because if you take the radiator to your local repair shop & they fix the leak, whats to say there isn't another thin spot in the oil cooler that could start leaking at any time & you have the same problem all over again. Replacing a radiator with an internal oil-cooler or just having the oil-cooler replaced gets to be expensive. You can get various sized "stand-alone" oil-coolers at just about any Auto Parts store.
